National commitment – land use planning and the COVID-19 pandemic

April 20, 2020

A National Communique from Planning Ministers was released on the 20th of April 2020, which recognises the importance of the operation of planning systems and the development assessment pipeline continuing to function during COVID-19. The national agreement has been reached between the Planning Ministers from every State and Territory, the President of the Australiana Local Government Association and the Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure.

HIA welcomes this announcement and has been lobbying various tiers of government to implement building and planning matters to assist our members at this time.
